[audio]Insight: Hospice Care / Korean War Memoir / Friendly Fallout 1953 / Kickstarter Boys
Hospice Care - Elizabeth Edwards, who died Tuesday after battling cancer, spent the last days of her life in hospice. But many cancer patients don't go that route, and local hospice advocates say California has a poor record of cancer patients going into hospice. Why? And why should someone consider hospice care? Korean War Memoir - The Korean War is sometimes called "the forgotten war," but it's a vivid memory for a Sacramento man who served in the Army's special forces during that war fighting...

[movies]OperationHARDTACK Basic Effects Structures and Materiel - Lookout Mountain Laboratory USAF
Operation HARDTACK I consisted of 35 nuclear tests conducted at the Pacific Proving Ground between April 28 and August 18, 1958. These tests included balloon, surface, barge, underwater, and rocket-borne high-altitude tests. The first test, Yucca, was a nuclear device attached to a helium balloon launched from the USS Boxer near Enewetak Atoll. HARDTACK I consisted of three portions; the first was the development of nuclear weapons...

[movies]Operation ARGUS, Report of Chief, AFSWP to ARPA - Lookout Mountain Laboratory USAF
Operation ARGUS was a series of three high-altitude nuclear tests conducted by the Atomic Energy Commission in the South Atlantic Ocean in August and September 1958. The results of Operation ARGUS proved the validity of the Christofilos Theory. This theory proposed that a radiation belt is created in the upper regions of the Earth's atmosphere by high-altitude detonations. The radiation belt affects radio and radar transmissions, damages or destroys the arming and fuzing mechanisms of interconti...

[movies]Military Effects Studies on Operation CASTLE - AFSWP
Operation CASTLE was a six-detonation test series held at the Atomic Energy Commission's (AEC) Pacific Proving Ground in the Spring of 1954. This test series, principally conducted at the Enewetak and Bikini Atolls in the northwestern Marshall Islands, provided proof tests of large-yield thermonuclear, or hydrogen, devices. CASTLE represented the end of a drive for a workable thermonuclear weapon and the beginning of the refinement of large-H-bombs into smaller and more efficient weapons...

Operation TEAPOT consisted of 14 nuclear tests detonated from February 18 to May 15, 1955. The goal of the series was to test nuclear devices for possible inclusion in the nuclear weapons stockpile; improve military tactics, equipment and training; and study civil defense requirements. With Operation TEAPOT, the Atomic Energy Commission intensified its technical effort for "clean" or reduced fallout weapons and missile warheads...

Operation REDWING, a 17-test nuclear weapons series, was conducted at the Pacific Proving Ground between May 4 and July 21, 1956. The Atomic Energy Commission (AEC) tested high-yield thermonuclear devices that could not be tested at the Nevada Test Site. Over 10,000 military personnel and civilian employees of the AEC and the Department of Defense participated in these nuclear tests. The LACROSSE and CHEROKEE tests were observed from aboard the USS Mount McKinley by 15 American press, radio and ...

"The island of Elugelab is missing!" President Eisenhower heard this short report on the Mike shot in Operation IVY from Gordon Dean, Chairman of the Atomic Energy Commission. Mike was the first full-scale hydrogen explosive device to be tested, yet was only a scientific test of a thermofusion implosion device concept. Mike was not a deliverable weapon. The island where the device was detonated was vaporized...

Operation TUMBLER-SNAPPER consisted of eight nuclear shots in two phases. The TUMBLER phase was of primary concern to the Department of Defense, which called for airdropped nuclear weapons tests. The SNAPPER second phase was a set of experiments conducted by the Atomic Energy Commission and the Los Alamos Scientific Laboratory to help improve effects of nuclear weapons. Able, an airdrop event on April 1, 1952, produced a yield of one kiloton...

This operation conducted at the Nevada Test Site consisted of 11 atmospheric tests. There were three airdrops, seven tower tests, and one airburst. Functioning between March 17 and June 4, 1953, this operation involved the testing of new theories, using both fission and fusion "boosted" devices -- boosted devices are not multistage thermonuclear operation devices. A new and revolutionary method of producing deliverable nuclear weapons for use in a potential nuclear battlefield in Europe was succ...
